‘It’s a good road we’re on’: Manchester United star Christian Eriksen heaps praise on midfield partner Scott McTominay as he insists the pair are beginning to build a ‘good connection’ in Erik ten Hag’s side

  • Christian Eriksen praises Manchester United midfield partner Scott McTominay
  • The Dane thinks he is building a ‘good connection’ with the Scottish midfielder 
  • The duo have helped the side win four consecutive games in the Premier League

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay had been praised by teammate Christian Eriksen for his impact during the team’s improved form in the Premier League.

After suffering defeat to Brighton on the opening day and a hammering from Brentford, United bounced back to win their next four games in the league. This run also included impressive wins over Liverpool and season pace setters Arsenal.

Part of this success has been down to Eriksen and McTominay’s partnership in midfield, the strength of which was proved when the midfield changed in the Red Devils’ defeat to Real Sociedad in the Europa League clash on Thursday evening.

Eriksen thinks that the Scottish midfielder and he have formed a good understanding in the middle of the pitch.

He told the club media: ‘Scott has done very well and I think you can see that from the games.

‘I think in the first few ones we were looking for each other a bit and seeing where we are, but now I think we are starting to get a good connection and a good feeling of where you should be, and also because of the instructions of the manager as he has the positions he would like us to be in.

‘So first of all we need to focus on our partnership and, at the same time, we need to focus on where the manager wants us to be.

‘I think it’s gone well, but also when you win games it’s just easier to look back and the confidence builds up and you forget the small mistakes you make and remember the good things.

‘There are a lot of things we can improve, but it’s a good road we’re on.’

Manager Erik ten Hag will be hoping the duo will work their wonders again when Manchester United are back in action.

The Red Devils’ next game is in the Europa League against Moldovan side Sheriff Tiraspol after the Premier League fixture at Crystal Palace was postponed due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
